Wired NextFest 2007

On Friday (9/14), I took some computer science students to the Los Angeles Convention center to the Wired Magazine NextFest. It’s a small expo with new technology in areas like communication, design, transportation, and the environment.

Here are some of the things we saw:

There were a lot of things there that I had heard about, but never seen with my own eyes. For example, there was a walking robot (looked like Einstein), a large touch-screen that responded to gestures (like the iPhone… so it’s not new, but I hadn’t ever used that technology myself before), and an electric, zero-emissions car.

I didn’t take these pictures myself – I brought along my camera, but promptly locked the keys in the car as soon as we arrived downtown. Fortunately, my housemates were on their way to San Pedro later that evening, so they met us downtown, and brought me my spare key.

After a couple hours, we had seen enough, so we went to 6th & Hope to see where Biola used to be, then ate dinner at Qdoba before driving back, in time for the Math Department game night. (We played “Ticket to Ride”, among other things).
